As I wrote about earlier, IHG Rewards Club is the first major hotel loyalty program to announce their 2015 promotion.
IHG Set Your Sights promo published
IHG Rewards Club has now unveiled the full details of their first quarter 2015 promotion, entitled Set Your Sights. The promotion is valid for stays between January 1 and April 30, 2015.
You’ll have to log into your account to register and see what your offer is.
Much like IHG Rewards Club’s recent Into The Nights promotion, this one consists of several “tasks” you have to complete to earn the maximum bonus. Beyond that, the offer is customized for each member, so we all have different offers.
Admittedly this will piss some people off, since they design these promotions to generate incremental business. In other words, those that don’t stay at IHG properties much generally get great offers, while those that are loyal often get nearly impossible tasks.
My Set Your Sights promo offer
I haven’t done a revenue stay with IHG all year though am Platinum through their co-branded credit card. Not surprisingly my version of the promotion is actually quite lucrative. My basic “tasks” are as follows:
- 500 points / Download the IHG App / download the app and log-in
- 5,000 points / Book Directly with IHG / book two stays directly with IHG
- 5,000 points / Stay More, Earn More / stay three nights at any IHG property
- 5,000 points / A Bonus Weekend Stay / stay two weekend nights
- 10,000 points / Change Your View / stay at two Holiday Inn properties
- 25,000 points / Achievement Bonus / complete all five tasks
So for example, I could earn all 50,000 points with just three nights in a hotel. I’d have to do two of those nights over a weekend and stay at a minimum of two Holiday Inn properties. That’s super easy.
It seems like some people have offers for well over 50,000 bonus points, though in many cases there are also higher thresholds to be completed.
Here’s to hoping that IHG Rewards Club does a better job managing this promotion than their Into The Nights promotion.
Overall this is a fairly lucrative promotion, at least in my case. I really should switch some stays to IHG during this promo period to max out the bonus.
What does your IHG Set Your Sights bonus offer look like, and is it enough to encourage you to stay with them?
